About the Building the City, From Skyscrapers to Trains Walk in New York
New York is one of the world’s busiest and most dynamic cities. Millions of people work, live, and play in the city on a daily basis. This family-focused walking tour, led by an educator, practicing architect or preservationist, explores the building blocks of the city- skyscrapers, streets, trains, and parks.
Using the 42nd Street corridor and such iconic structures and public spaces as Grand Central Terminal, the Daily News Building, and Times Square as our textbook, together we will learn about urban planning and how these fundamental elements work together. Utilizing such activities as "learning to look" games and sketching- designed for children and their parents to participate together- we will learn how to "read" architecture and discover what the structural and decorative elements of a building, bridge or park can tell us about how it was made and what it is used for.
As with all of our family programs, the material will be tailored to the level and interests of the youngestread more
